    ..Our observations show that the degrading and nutrient-mobilizing components of the fungal community are spatially separated. This has important implications for biogeochemical studies of boreal forest ecosystems. ..
  2. Högberg P, Johannisson C, Yarwood S, Callesen I, Näsholm T, Myrold D, et al. Recovery of ectomycorrhiza after 'nitrogen saturation' of a conifer forest. New Phytol. 2011;189:515-25 pubmed publisher
    ..High N loading rapidly decreased the functional role of ectomycorrhiza in the forest N cycle, but significant recovery occurred within 6-15yr after termination of N loading. ..
  3. Ljung K, Ostin A, Lioussanne L, Sandberg G. Developmental regulation of indole-3-acetic acid turnover in Scots pine seedlings. Plant Physiol. 2001;125:464-75 pubmed
    ..It is interesting that when de novo synthesis is induced, a distinct induction of catabolic events occurs, indicating that the seedling needs mechanisms to balance synthesis rates for the homeostatic regulation of the IAA pool. ..

    ..These observations highlight the close temporal coupling between tree canopy photosynthesis and a significant fraction of soil activity in forests. ..

    ..This is suggested to enhance the radiationless dissipation of excess light within the PSII reaction center during cold acclimation and during cold winter periods. ..

  8. Nilsson M, Wikman S, Eklund L. Induction of discolored wood in Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). Tree Physiol. 2002;22:331-8 pubmed
    ..The results suggest that ethylene is an important factor controlling heartwood formation, although wounding and internal concentrations of carbon dioxide may also play a role...

    ..Our genome coverage was estimated to be more than 98% with a framework marker interval of 20 cM for both parents. Most of the female and male linkage groups were associated through the analysis of the intercross markers...

    ..This retrieval of ancient DNA from pollen has major implications for plant palaeoecology in conifer species by allowing direct estimates of population dynamics in space and time. ..
